Default 40's only run 2010

Well, I will kick off the thread. It was a great day of wheelin' with new and old friends. We had 19 rigs total... I think, Treeroot join in a little into the trail.

We had mild stock 40's to built up rock crawlers. Great trails, beautiful high country views, we scooted around most of the weather, and had a few vapor lock issues.

Martin did an AMAZING job of leading and dealing with the 134 "golf carts" on the trail today. Martin really did a great job, thanks again man!

We saw some mountain goats with a baby in tow.

It was a great run. We didn't bring a camera, so I will have to wait for the others to post up. We DID have some cool shots of nearly 20 40's (one fj40) coming up and over the pass.

Great run, I was glad to make it.

Here are some random pics. Sorry some are out of focus, Ricardo wouldn't slow down. He must have been in a hurry to get home.

Hey, just wanted to say thanks for the great 40's only ride!
19 rigs, great weather and great people!
"Billy" was on Wise mountain looking out for us.

I gave all my pics to Martin, here are a couple...I will let Martin decide what else to post up...(yep, passing the buck)


Keep those 40's alive for next year!

Thanks everyone for coming out for the 40's Only Run! I had a great time and hope everyone else did as well. It was a big group, but we made it through with the minimum of problems. Like Drew said, a few vapor locked rigs (including mine) and tons of atv and motorcycle traffic, but overall, it went really well.

Thanks again Rui for the pics! I'll get them uploaded tonight after I get home from work and post some up. Have to save some for a Toyota Trails article too.

Thanks again, hope to see you all on the trail again soon.

That was another epic 40's run. The weather gods smiled upon us, the mountain goats showed their appreciation of old iron and the Land Cruisers conquered the mountain yet again.



Thanks for doing such a terrific job Martin. I reckon Joe was pretty impressed with his kid!
